Summary

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 10.2-mile reach of the Wabash River at Memorial Bridge at Vincennes, Indiana, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. The flood-inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science Web site at http://water.usgs.gov/osw/flood_inundation/, depict estimates of the areal extent and depth of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at the USGS streamgage on the Wabash River at Memorial Bridge at Vincennes, Indiana (station number 03343010). Near-real-time stages at this streamgage may be obtained from the USGS National Water Information System at http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ [...]

Purpose

The datasets were developed in order to produce a series of estimated flood-inundation maps for the Wabash River at Memorial Bridge at Vincennes, Indiana. The datasets (flooded area polygons and depth rasters) can be downloaded. Internet users can select estimated inundation maps that correspond to (1) flood stages at streamgage 03343010 and (2) the NWS forecasted stages at the NWS site VCNI3. The scope of the study was limited to the Wabash River reach from Sevenmile Island to 3.7 mile downstream of Lincoln Memorial Bridge.
